Currently South Africa issues traditional passports to its citizens. In wake of the incidents on September 11th 2001, ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) decided to reinforce the international cooperation to protect the security and integrity of passports. A decision was taken by all the Member States that issuance of machine-readable passports must become mandatory by 2010.

To meet this requirement, the SA Government Printing Works issued a tender for new passports. The new passports shall be machine-readable and unable to be copied and counterfeited. Trüb, working with local agent BRAND NEW Technologies, won the tender after a stringent pre-qualification phase. A key feature that led to Trüb securing this tender is the fact that the datapage is 100% polycarbonate and can be personalized via laser engraving. With this South Africans’ are receiving a state-of-the-art high quality solution guaranteed for the lifecycle of the passport. The value of the first order is in the multi-million Swiss francs range.

The introduction of the new passport is scheduled for spring 2009.
